Westwood plans to release improvements and new content for its online space RPG on a monthly basis--and the first update is coming next week.


Westwood has announced that the first update for Earth & Beyond will be released on October 30. The studio plans to release updates for the online space role-playing game at the end of every month. Westwood has also revealed that the first Earth & Beyond special event will take place on October 31.

Players have had the game for over a month and have had the chance to level up, and the first update will expand the number of items that mid- and high-level characters can find after battling the tougher monsters.
